Homemade facial scrub for sensitive skin must respond two implications. First, it should help us to get rid of old skin cells. Second, the scrub should not irritate the skin.
Not all products could get through this objective. I use two products for homemade scrub for sensitive skin: egg yolk and baking soda.
Baking soda is used in many homemade scrubs as mechanical exfoliator. It is suitable for sensitive skin because its granules are less than granules of sugar or coffee. Soda works more gentle than salt. It’s coming with antibacterial features at the same time.
The yolk is great for sensitive skin and is also used in many mask recipes (for example, An Egg Yolk Face Mask). In addition to its useful properties it has an adhesive structure. The yolk peels dead skin cells when it dries on the face skin and after they are washing away together with scrub.
- 1-2 egg yolks
- 1 tsp of baking soda
Wash the egg. Crack it and separate the yolk from the egg white.
Leave the egg white for another mask or add it to baked goods. You can just throw it away finally.
Mix egg yolk with soda and with few drops of olive oil or 1-2 drops of tea tree oil or lavender. These aromatic oils soothe the skin.
Massage your face with circular movements of the fingers.
Wait until scrub dries. Wash it off with a washcloth. Pat the face and apply your favorite moisturizer on.
